Moto Guzzi V7 Racer unveiled

This is Moto Guzzi’s luxurious new café racer: designed for a “gentleman in the mood for a track day”. Video: Moto Guzzi V7 Racer in action It’s called the V7 Racer and it stakes its claim as an object of desire from the off, boasting a chromed tank with leather strap and a single-seater suede saddle. The bespoke charms don’t end there,...

power

hope they add some much need power to go with the appearence. V7 classic has about 50hp and 40 tq? If Guzzi can crank it up to 70hp and 50 tq (cams, headwork more compression, timing and injection), I think this would do well. Appearence wise, I think the only thing it is lacking is another brake disc up front. Looks great!

too much

We don't need Moto Guzzi to tell us what is exquisite. "Connaisseurs" can recongnised on their own. Shame they didn't use the v11 engine. However the v7 will be subject to some interesting old school tuning. Great looking bike too

Very pretty but will make about 40bhp at the back wheel- cant see it being fun at all for "the gentleman in the mood for a track day" more suitable for the "lady or gentleman who wants a pretty little bike and does not want to go too fast". In reality this will have the same power as a 750 Nevada or Breva.

Small block Guzzi motors do not take kindly to major tuning so not point in bothering unless you have money to burn.

I agree with the other comments- Guzzi need to build a bike like this but with real grunt.

Guzzis have

never done anything for me. The japs move with the times giving bikers what they want. Guzzis still seem stuck in the 1950s. It may have some of the latest trick parts on it but is still jammed solid in the BSA era.

underwhelmed

Like others I'm confused and underwhelmed by this bike. I like Guzzi's and the idea of a small highly tuned one could be fun but it doesn't sound like this is highly tuned. Overall I'm not sure why people would go for one of these instead of the excellent (albeit a little slow) V7 Classic Cafe except because its slightly different.

nice legs

A lovely looking bike, but the motor is only useful in commuting situations.  The tyre sizes let it look classic, but the handling will not set anyone's life on fire.

Pretty mr guzzi, but chuck in the old two valve twin and let me put a tyre newer than 20years old on the back.

Any chance of a long term loaner for the financially destitute?

Guzzi has never made bikes for the masses. This one is no exception. It will appeal in small numbers, most likely Guzzi owners who want to add to the stable and show up for a Sunday ride on something different.
